Russian Liberal News Station Under Kremlin Attack
The station ran a poll asking if Soviet leaders should have surrendered Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) to the Nazi's, saving millions of lives. Leg­is­la­tors from Unit­ed Rus­sia, the rul­ing par­ty, claimed that the poll was un­pa­tri­otic, and the na­tion­al pros­ecu­tor and the Fed­eral Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Agency be­gan an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Dozhd. The sta­tion’s ex­ec­u­tives said that the poll, which was pulled from the broad­cast af­ter on­ly 12 min­utes, had been posed pre­vi­ous­ly by oth­er news out­lets. The neg­a­tive re­ac­tion be­gan two hours later when a group of pro-Krem­lin blog­gers be­gan dis­trib­ut­ing a screen­shot from the orig­i­nal broad­cast.
